Mrs. Margaret Foote died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. H.R. Ayer, of Great Falls, Mont., Aug. 12, 1915.

She was born in the Province of Quebec, Canada, in May 1845, being the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Ross. When past four years old she came here with her parents. Her father was for years a prominent lumberman and the family made their home on the Ross Eddy farm. Here she grew to womanhood and was married to Chas. Foote. They settled on the farm on Pleasant, Ridge, Clark County, now owned by Jos. Chase. Some years ago Mr. Foote died; about five years ago the farm was sold and she went to Montana to live with her children. The death of Mrs. Foote takes another from the list of Neillsville pioneers. She was a good woman and a model mother, wife and neighbor, one who did well her work in the home and the community. She was a member of the Eastern Star Lodge, the Rebeckahs, and also the Episcopal Church.

She is survived by her son Oscar of Great Falls, Mont., and three daughters: Mrs. Ayers of Great Falls, Mrs. Herschel King of Ashland, Ore., and Mrs. F.J. Mathwig of Cereal, Canada. She leaves also three sister: Mrs. V. T. Graham, Minneapolis; Mrs. Chas. McDonald, La Crosse; Mrs. D.B. Manes of Neillsville. All of these relatives came to attend the funeral except Mrs. King.

The remains were brought here for burial beside her husband and son Frank, who died some years ago. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at the Episcopal Church, Rev. W. Davis of Marshfield officiating.
